Although it’s a well-built and durable SUV, the GMC Terrain at Buick GMC Pensacola has a refined exterior that exudes elegance and luxury at every angle. From its prominent wheels to glistening chrome accents, there’s little missing on the outside for the latest GMC Terrain. The base level of the Terrain, called the SL, has heated side mirrors and a privacy glass in the rear. Some additional styling elements are included as you progress upward in the trim lineup, including the addition of LED lights and roof rails. The top trim level, which is the Denali, has its own unique set of exterior accents and styling cues. Although the GMC Terrain has a rounded exterior with smooth lines, the Nissan Rogue has a square and boxy frame that gives it a sportier look but not the same universal appeal. While the GMC has the range-topping Denali that gives you more diversity for exterior appearances, most of the Rogue lineup looks the same, with just minor exterior differences distinguishing one trim from the next.
